Owen Henry Russell

Born March 28th 2008
7 lbs 3 ozs, 20 inches
A lucky 3 hour delivery






It is better then i ever thought it could be...

he is an angel baby... last night he went to bed at 11:00
and he finally let me wake him up at 5:00 am... then right
back to sleep after his feeding.

we can't stop staring at him...
he probably wonders who these weirdos are who are
always in his face as he wakes up...

i love being a mother

congrats! i have been waiting for pictures...brr says he's so cute and has tons of hair. glad he's a good baby-that makes being a new mom a little less shocking! and a 3 hour delivery? come on! luh-kee-duck!

Lucky woman. For me the no sleep is the hardest. Sounds like you have that one in the bag though. He is super cute!

It doesn't look like an alien, which is odd for a baby. I was looking for some metrotastic clothing from soel and found your blog... When is a good time for us to home teach you? I joke.

Guys. Last time I checked, having a baby doesn't give you a pass to never go to church again. If that was the case polygamists would be the least pious people ever... and we all know that's not the case.
